I just discovered a deadout super that I left in one of the freezers.
Until the Goldenrod hits, is there any reason I shouldn't hit it with a heat gun and then place it on top of the hive for a few days?
Plenty of honey and pollen, along with everything else that a deep has to offer.

if the hive doesn't need any resources, I would save the frames for next season to boost a package or split. Don't use a heat gun rather let them warm naturally for 24 hours. You would probably melt the wax in order to get a honey frame to warm from freezing.

Why would you want to uncap before putting in the hive? There really is no need to uncap if you are putting into a hive as an added resource. The bees will figure out how to get to the honey.
